NCAA Football power rankings

By Gracenote

The Alabama Crimson Tide and quarterback Jalen Hurts have not disappointed college football fans so far as they look to continue their hunt to return to the playoffs.

1. Alabama Crimson Tide - The Crimson Tide appear to be destined to return to the playoffs, and for the next few weeks their biggest concern will be staying healthy.

2. Oklahoma Sooners - Baker Mayfield got his revenge against the Buckeyes this week. He's the best quarterback in the country, and the favourite to win the Heisman.

3. Clemson Tigers - The Tigers head to Louisville for a massive game that might just have playoff implications.

4. USC Trojans - Sam Darnold got off to a slow start, but he looked like a Heisman candidate in the Trojans win over Stanford.

5. Penn State - The Nittany Lions are proving that last season's BIG10 Championship was no fluke.

6. Wisconsin Badgers - The Badgers are taking advantage of a favourable schedule, and they will be a big favourite at BYU this week.

7. Michigan Wolverines - The Wolverines have picked up right where they left off last season, despite a new look defence.

8. Washington Huskies - The Huskies will look to take advantage of their non-conference schedule before they face Colorado in Week 4.

9. Oklahoma State Cowboys - Mason Rudolf accounted for four of Oklahoma State's TDs in a 44-7 win over South Alabama in Week 2.

10. Ohio State - The Buckeyes are down but not out. Winning the BIG10 would likely still put them back in the playoffs.

11. Florida State - The Seminoles will be well rested by the time they play NC State in Week 4. Given that they will need to replace their starting QB, they aren't likely going to complain.

12. LSU Tigers - The Tigers will play at Mississippi State this week, and last year the Bulldogs lost by just three points at Baton Rouge.

13. Kansas State Wildcats - Jesse Ertz is looking good in his senior year, and the Wildcats are a contender in the BIG12.

14. Louisville Cardinals - After suffering a close loss at Clemson last year, the Cardinals will have a chance to execute revenge at home this week.

15. Georgia Bulldogs - The Bulldogs won outright as an underdog at South Bend in Week 2.
